Hardik Pandya Hardik Pandya Height: 6 feet DOB: October 11, 1993

Often being compared with India’s World Cup winning captain and all-rounder Kapil Dev, Hardik Pandya has substantiated the comparisons on many occasions with his hard-hitting abilities and brisk seam bowling. Along with his playing style, his experiments with hairstyles and hair colours make him stand out among his peers. But he plays as flamboyantly on field as he carries himself off the field. Pandya is truly a find of the Indian Premier League (IPL) as his heroics with Mumbai Indians booked his berth for the Indian cricket team. Following a successful IPL 2015 and Syed Mushtaq Ali domestic T20 tournament in 2016, the Gujarati all-rounder made his debut for Team India on January 26, 2016, in a T20I match against Australia at Adelaide. It took him a few months to break into the 50-over set up as he debuted in ODI cricket on October 16, 2016, playing New Zealand at the picturesque HPCA Stadium, Dharamsala. With a fifty on his Test debut, Pandya played his first longest-format game for India on July 26-29, 2017, against Sri Lanka at Galle.
